Minto Communities USA has been recognized with nine 2024 Eliant HomeBuyers’ Choice Awards. The awards are presented annually to home builders judged by their own home buyers to have provided the best customer experience.

The 29th annual HomeBuyers’ Choice Awards were held in Newport Beach, California, on April 11 and also celebrated Eliant’s 40th anniversary. Award-winning builders were selected based on results from 190,000 surveys administered by Eliant to all of the recent homeowners of more than 225 major home builders throughout the United States.

Minto received the second place HomeBuyers’ Choice Award in the category of First Year Quality: High-Volume Builders. The award recipient is selected based on the key survey measure of “Overall, I am satisfied with the quality of my home.” Minto also received the honorable mention fifth-place award for Overall Home Purchase and Ownership Experience, which reflects a combination of the Move-In, Mid-Year and Year-End key survey measures.

Minto construction representatives received five Construction Representative of the Year awards. Tim Bland received a first-place award, Asa Fayne received a second-place award and Alex Bellamy received an honorable mention fifth-place award in the High-Volume Survey Responses category. Ryan Blaine and Brian Freeman tied for the first-place award in the Medium-Volume Survey Responses category.

Minto design specialists received two Design Representative of the Year awards. Elena Koshechko received a third-place award, and Savannah Foster received an honorable mention fifth-place award in the High-Volume Responses category.

“We are thrilled to honor these exemplary builders and representatives who have achieved outstanding levels of customer satisfaction,” Eliant President Fernanda Luick said. “Consumers have so many choices when selecting a home builder — it is important to recognize those who demonstrate excellence in customer experience.”

Eliant has long been recognized as the nation’s leading provider of customer experience management services for U.S., Canadian and Middle East building firms. Eliant’s customer experience monitoring, training and consulting services are considered to be the industry gold standard.
